How can a nationally…nay, an Internationally known company, be this bad at customer service? Yes, I’m referring to the Burger King, again.

When I go on trips whether it be business or for pleasure, I want to throat punch anyone that says things like, We’ll barely be in our room. I just need a clean bed to sleep in. WTF?
